Aberdeen-based Magma Products is looking to create 30 new jobs in and around Great Yarmouth after investing £500,000 in a new base at Beacon Park.
The oil and gas engineering consultancy will initially create six jobs at the 6,600 sq ft facility which also sees Andrew Sannick, appointed general manager of the new operation.
The facility, will deliver complex brownfield, greenfield and ongoing maintenance projects, through the deployment of a specialist and proven engineering support model. The operation, at Beacon Park, has office, workshop and warehouse facilities.
It will also feature a specialist equipment hire and maintenance services division focused upon the southern North Sea and European markets.
Paul Rushton, managing director of Magma Products, said: “The opening of a Great Yarmouth operation is a key strategic step forward in our business growth plans.”
Magma Products, which provides specialist offshore commissioning and start-up services, has grown from a business employing six people in 2011 to a 90-strong team today.
